subversion 1.3.1 + apr 0.9.7 = memory leak?

I have installed Subversion 1.3.1 and APR 0.9.7 from pkgsrc on a NetBSD
3.99.7 box. I created a fresh fsfs database and svn import'd the
entire NetBSD source tree.

When I run commands such as 'svn co' and 'svn status -u' on the
repository, they take several minutes to run (i.e., too long), and svn's
memory usage climbs to 150MB, which seems unusually high. This is not
acceptable performance in my application, and I am wondering if there is
some easy way to speed up operations on large repositories such as mine.

I have scanned the users@subversion mailing list archives for others'
reports about high memory usage and slow commands, and I do not find
any reports concerning 1.3.x.

I am beginning to suspect that a memory leak in APR 0.9.7 is behind the
high memory usage. Can anyone confirm? Do most people use APR 1.2 with
Subversion 1.3.1?
